Denim Co is a fashion cafe where you can find everything; food for any time of day, drinks, exotic desserts, and a trendy clothing boutique.
The breakfast menu is extensive although not the most original, while the lunch-into-evening menu offers a range of options, but the dessert is where it's at. The owner, Fara, travels constantly to find the latest, greatest sweet treats and the results are obvious. Try the Italian Peach, a custard-filled sponge soaked in Galliano and dusted with sugar.

If it's a hot drink you desire this is the place to indulge. They offer White, Dark or Milk Hot Chocolate and it's the real deal; chocolate flakes served with hot milk that you combine yourself. I was truly excited to spy Italian Hot Chocolate on the menu. If you've never tried this masterpiece, it's time. The best way to describe it is as chocolate melted into a gooey, thick concoction and passed off as a drink so you can still order cake – brilliant.
Of course they also have coffee, tea and the other usual suspects. For a variation on the usual cafe outing, get drinks and snacks to take away then go for a walk through South Bank and along the river.
